I read your first book…made my daily task list and my week day cleaning list. I was excited to start! So all last week I purposely made sure I did the dishes every day, swept, wiped…yes me! So then I started on weekday ones….Mon laundry ✓, Tues bathroom✓, Wed shop, bills, errands..well only bills cause I did my monthly shop online!✓ Thur and Fri I started my sewing room declutter…trash, donate, sell…since all mopping and sweeping has to be done by hubby and child due to disability so I push them to Sat when they’re available….but Sun?!? That is when the miracle happened!! We have no storage in our tiny house so my hubby built a pantry of open shelves…this was crammed full! Of course I just shopped and threw it in there which didn’t help but I knew I wanted to declutter it soon…well hubby and daughter helped empty out corner as I tossed and ran things where I would go to find X…then hubby and I did the pantry! ..all outdated is gone, like stuff is together, he even washed the shelves. While we were doing this my 9 yr old daughter says I want to declutter! Right, can you believe it??? So I gave her the task of spice cupboard she tossed half as outdated, washed shelf and re organized the ones that were left!! Amazing! Then she went into the bathroom and did the brush/comb drawer. I am in awe! It all looks so good. It took about 75 min from start to finish but so worth it! I know, I know…. tonight do the dishes, wipe the counters and stove, sweep the floor…oh wait I did the floor earlier!! thank you for the inspiration I am still reading your 2nd book and watching you on you tube daily. I don’t have a web site…I’m 65yrs young and really don’t use one…yet.
